also, i think the Xcal and the Max overlap a bit

175 SSS Wizard - Two black, stickies for 100' and in.
175 Z Buzzz SS - So straight, hits tight lines
177 Z Drone - No turnovers, very accurate
175 Z Stalker - Straight fairway
168 Z Nuke - Max distance
171 Star Xcaliber - Long hyzers
175 Star Max - Huge skips around doglegs
173 Opto XXX - Flex shots, sharp doglegs

I'm learning to do more with fewer molds. My backhand accuracy has come a long way this year - about 90% as accurate as my forehand. Getting the Nuke and Xcal out to 360 on golf lines.

There is a large speed difference between the Archon and the Buzz SS for understable flight. Maybe a fairway driver could help on some holes. One that is understable unlike the Pred and the Xtreme.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I'll go for Teeberd and Firebird since they are stable fairway....

Mamba turns over with tailwind. Vulcan turns over with no wind. Katana is fairly straight with no wind and turns over with slight headwind. King is the most understable disc I can forehand.
